Subject: Brilliant post drums...
You know mr. "solemly stated"...what in the hell is the point of your review...does it help feed your insecurities to declare how superior your (snob) "deadhead" experience has been? Come on man...inquiring minds want to know...why the hell are you taking the time to write a review of a show you don't even like???

Anyway, not anywhere near as strong as the first night...my friends and I had the benefit of good seats and my arm was still in a sling from a crash on the way back from Buffalo...ouch...however the post drums>space sequence is spectacular...Last Time has to be one of the best they have ever done with Bob waaaay high in the mix. SOTM is above average and Jerry is playing beautifully. Sugar Mag is ragingly hot...I was 6-7th row I think with Bob literally spitting everywhere...one of the most intense GD experiences of my life (saw 59 shows)...Brokedown was an appropro commentary on the selfish leeches that began to seriously infect the scene that was so precious...may God have mercy on all you pathetic thugs that ruined it for the rest of us...if you are a real fan of this band you have to take into account the stressors they encountered along the way...esp Jerry...take the fuckin good with the bad and appreciate how lucky you were to have had the privilege to have seen them at all...

Subject: You Can Always tell a deadhead, but you can't tell him much
Truth: The band definitely went downhill after '91. Anyone who says otherwise either doesn't have the direct experience to compare with or is just wishful. Not everything the band did is worthy of worship or reverence. Being able to call bullshit on, well, bullshit is a strength not a weakness. Just b/c people are invested in something being 100 percent magical all the time to justify the time they spent doesn't necessarily make it so.

Subject: Sell Everything...
This was an odd show. I was there, with some of the best seats I'd ever had. The night before had been very good (although, not as good as it looks on paper) and this show started out strongly enough. The Help/Slip was kind of messed up, as Jerry just jumped into the lyrics without the usual intro - that seemed to throw the rest of the band off a bit. The rest of the first set smoked, though, with great energy and strong song choices. But then - came the second set and it was like an entirely different band. NO energy, lackluster song choices - I can remember during "Truckin'" seeing one of the roadies backstage mocking the boys as they sang, "Sometimes the lights are shining on me", it was as if the people backstage knew this was a lame set.

Subject: Ciaooooo , sono mario , 1952 . BRAVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII !
hallo , bravi . conosco i grateful dead dal 1968 , e fino al 2011 , conoscevo pochissimo o nulla dei GDEAD . Credevo che fossero un gruppo come gli altri , invece con bellissima sorpresa noto che si possono posizionare allo stesso posto ( I° ) di BEETHOVEN , io personalmente adesso ho messo : GDEAD al I° , poi BEETHOVEN al II° , e poi gli altri . Per esempio : LED ZEPPELIN , GENESIS , PINK FLOYD , DEEP PURPLE , TRAFFIC , YES , Ecc. Ma il migliore di tutti é ed sarà JERRY GARCIA . Io provengo da una zona d'italia dove é nata la ''PIZZICA-PIZZICA'' , che mi piace molto , e so cosa vuol dire IMPROVVISARE senza usare : MODI SCONTATI , TONI FACILI , o TONI STRAMPALATI , ecc. Non so suonare nessun strumento , ed ascolto la musica 24/24 ore , anche durante il sonno , ( con gli auricolari ) . E se imparassi a suonare uno stumento musicale ( piano , chitarra , organo elettonico ) , mi piacerebbe moltissimo suonarlo come JERRY . Nello stesso modo . Ciaoooooooooooooo a risentirci .

Subject: I know this isn't the place but...
After reading the comments about the jerks who ruin it for everyone I can't Help-Slippin-Franklin it!

Here, here for the other two posters who gave this guy the bizniz.

It's amazing how many of these reviews contain people "bragging" about the trouble they caused or how they got in for free etc. As if by now they still haven't realized we hate you!
(Ok, I'll speak for myself.)

And I love seeing the videos and hearing the stories of how unfairly they were treated by authorities. All these dinks who caused the trouble bashhing the cops etc. Classic!

As for the show, I remember there being quite a few people we were trying to "avoid". That's when we first started to realize the scene was changing and we were becoming aggravated by what was creeping up on us.

The recording is nice but I have to say, seemed a lot more sloppy and going through the motion-ish than I remember.

Subject: Dumb phishkidz ruin show
Star lake was a beautiful venue. But the parking lot scene was so out of hand kids trying to sell dope and crack. These phishkidz destroyed OUR COMMUNITY. hey the show was great jerry was on fire phil killed on and on and on. Phil really was the backbone of the show. Vince sucked. Help,slip,franklins got the show off to really jazzy start, the band teased us with Last Time, then all the gate crashers started pushing up on us. All i can say is GOD BLESS JERRY and his GUITAR they were screaming with THE GOLD OF SUNSHINE. UOR FAMILY LIVES ON!!!!

Subject: I disagree
I fully disagree that there was nothing memorable about this tour. Remember the Casey Jones bust-out on 6-20 at RFK (first one since 84)? Or the Second verse Dark Star the night before this night? I would agree that this night was not strong, but the Knickerbocker run was great (6-11-92 & 6-12-92 are smokin'!!), the Richfield run was great (Mind Left Body jam the first night!!). The James Cotton sit-in at Soldiers was pretty cool. The Charlotte shows were strong (with an instrumental Dark Star verse one night). The first To Lay Me Down in two years at Deer Creek was sweet. The Buckeye show was even good. Even the first set New Speedways at The Knick and to end the first set this night were really cool. Was it a tour on par with summer 91? Definetley not, but still pretty good stuff.

A'frickin'men RovingSign.....I couldn't agree more.

Subject: Thanks, bud
To kallisti7: Love your review. Thanks for giving us a glimpse into the animal that made the dead dissolve. It was people like you, K7, who ruined it for everyone, not this mediocre show. Thanks for selling bunk acid and crawling under chainlink fences. Real cool, "bro." As for this show, this was my eighth or ninth of the tour, and it was, indeed, a weak run. The highlight of the whole tour was probably Billy shakin' his ass at RFK before blowing the foghorn for the "Casey Jones" intro. Or maybe it was those fake squares I bought from K7.

Subject: So Many Roads
Garcia EXPLODES on this. I had a hissy audience cassette many years ago and was totally blown away by his performance on that tune. Wow. I rather enjoy the show, overall. The second set gets up a nice head of steam toward the end.

Subject: 1992 Was a Crap Year for The Dead
I went to six or seven shows on this tour before going to jail for possession of four vials of liquid, but that wasn't the only reason this show was a bummer, the music was kind of shite. Vince's keyboards are just thin and completely inappropriate. Anyway ... this was a hard ticket to get due the fact that it's about three or four times smaller than Giants or RFK yet everyone seemed to be at this show anyway. I am not proud to say that just when I thought I was shut out my friend pointed behind me to where several heads were holding the bottom of the chain link fence at the back of the venue up and dozens of us went under and got in a just minutes before the show started. Then it got ugly. Security shored up the breach but hundreds of kids hung on the fences are rattled them in a frenzy to get in. Jerry misses several cues during HoTW. At the time I remmeber it seeming like he was too high or something. Sunshine Daydream is ok. Nothing on this tour is really all that memorable.
